Hi, I've been trying to find information about different breeds, but a lot of the information tends to be geared toward more professional criteria. We're planning on getting a few chickens. Most of the stuff I see is talking about how one breed or another is a great layer for two years and then you kill it, and...we don't plan on doing that. I'd rather have a breed that laid eggs reliably for most of its life, even if it didn't lay as many. I'd also like friendly/calm birds. What do you suggest?
